Hey folks,

Quick question here. I'm hopeful this property will open as scheduled - but anyway, I booked a reservation in November thru Kayak for what seemed like a very good deal ($~180 per...

This answer isn't going to help you, but - it depends. IME, sometimes they've told me it will *cost* me miles to cancel the stopover leg (which, obviously, is absurd and I've escalated and gotten it...

Meant Dec 19 in my original post. I think it was a confluence of things - business travelers heading back from work AND those also returning home for the holidays, plus anyone heading up for last...

I believe toward the end of last year, Dec 19th or so, SJC-SEA was ~98 on upgrade list. Just about the whole plane boarded in group A. Definitely the longest I have ever seen!!

Just curious, in this situation could you deplane & ask Alaska for a Taxi/Uber voucher? I know I would 100% rather deplane and sit in traffic rather than do taxi / takeoff / landing / taxi process on...

Why can't they survive without new investors?...

Why can't they survive without new investors? IIRC they were (are?) profitable. I've heard this before but I don't know the rationale behind it. Yes, you could argue that without TC as a travel...

"Volunteers needed to take a later flight" email

Hi folks,

Not the world's biggest issue, but I'd love to hear some data points here. Almost every single flight I take on AS (roughly 2x per week) I get this email asking for bump volunteers....

I completely agree, which is why I felt it was inevitable. That said, this makes me not care about which airline I fly to AU now, so perhaps a potential loss for QF. If they care about my $700...

Figured this was inevitable. Going to be much harder to get status next year for me - QF discounted econ was a great way to explore Australia and also gain a ton of AS miles & get status.

Depends how much appetite you have for going back to Aust, but plenty of fares on QF from $750-900 out of LAX or SFO to SYD or MEL. LAX-SYD-LAX is about 15K miles, if you tag hops through SFO you're...

Thanks! Good deal but I decided to head down to Australia for a week on Qantas instead. $700 RT for about 16K EQM and 35ish RDM. Obviously not as fun in Y but it's somewhere I want to go, so makes it...

Hi all,

Trying to figure out a good situation before I blow up my previous plans. I currently have a o/w SFO-SIN to position for the Fiji mistake fare (SIN-NAD-LAX-NAD-SIN) earlier, but I really...

Do you have evidence that TC has ever shuffled around assets or liabilities to help Condor? Not being accusatory, I just haven't heard much in the ways of "synergy" between TC and Condor; from an...

I think the argument in Condor's favor is that they've been profitable, expected to report yearly profits at the end of this month, and generally are a decent run airline. Yes, its likely that TC...

Yeah, doesn't look great. Sad news indeed for my OGG-SEA(stop)-FRA-FUE routing. Hard to beat for 25K miles. Gonna be a fun one to figure out..

The whole situation is a little confusing, but here's my understanding -

1) TC needs to get any deal like this approved by their board/shareholders.

2) a significant stake is controlled by...

I would hate to see them be liquidated. Not my favorite airline but one of my favorite award redemptions on AS. Lots of pending flights on them into 2020 which could end up quite messy..

I had this thought as well, but I feel like the GAs would scope you out pretty fast. FWIW this is the 4th time in a row I've gotten the "need volunteers" email in the last week between sea/bay area...

Not unexpected but based off convo with GAs in seattle yesterday, this might be stressing AS operations a bit. They told me basically all flights yesterday to bay area (all 3 airports) were sold out,...

FYI, I was able to call and change the departure city of my return flight to a different city - YMMV but I was surprised when it worked! Cost me about $130 but seemed fair.

Thanks, figured as much. Looks like I'll have to wait for the balance to actually post (not getting details on pending charge) to find ticket number. Good tip, thank you!

I booked a ticket using miles within 21 days, but then cancelled the booking within 24 hours of my original purchase. I called AA and they told me everything would be refunded but I'd be out...
